Hello everyone, happy Friday.
Here are your learning activities for today:
Have a look at the words you were learning for this week. Make sure you feel confident spelling them. Have another practice with any you still find tricky.
Remember the heading and today’s date 29.5.20. Ask someone at home if they could read your dictation out for you.

Take a new page in your jotter and write the heading – Grammar Activity and today’s date 29.5.20.
Copy out these sentences making sure you have corrected the spelling and punctuation, remember that proper nouns ( names of people and places) always need capital letters. Think about what you know about homophones and how to use them correctly.
You can choose to do just some of the sentences or really challenge yourself to complete all ten. Or maybe just talk to someone at home about the mistakes in the sentences.

MATHS AND NUMERACY
This week we have been developing our skills in measuring weight. Weighing an object tells us how heavy or light something is.
Two of the units of measurement we use when talking about weight are grams and kilograms. When we write an amount down we can use g for grams and kg for kilograms.
1000g = 1kg.
1g is much lighter than 1kg.
We use scales to measure how much something weighs and we looked at how to read scales yesterday.
Let’s think about what we have learned this week . Take a new page in your jotter, write the heading – Measure – Weight and today’s date 29.5.20
Write down the answers to the following:
a. Which one is lighter – a car or a truck?
b. Which one is heavier – a teddy bear or a Polar bear?
c. Put these in order, start with the heaviest : t- shirt, socks, boots, coat.
d. Write down 3 things in your house that are : lighter than 1 kilogram
heavier than 1 kilogram
Write down the weight you think is the nearest for each object. Look carefully at whether the amount is g for grams or kg for kilograms.
a. a pencil : 1g 10g 100g
b. gym shoes : 12g, 120g,500g
c. a book : 500g, 500kg, 50g
